Cranbrook, BC


Located in the beautiful southeast corner of British Columbia, the Kimberley Cranbrook Highland Dance Association exists to encourage dancers of all ages and levels to enjoy learning and performing Highland Dance.  Through the two dance schools, dancers can learn everything from the traditional Fling to new choreographies.  Dancers can be seen demonstrating their dances at functions such as Burn's Night and Christmas shows at senior homes, and compete in competitions from local to national level events.

Classes are offered for all ages - from preschool through adult.  Levels from Primary and Beginner to Premier are taught under the British Association of Teachers of Dance (BATD) Syllabus.  Classes are offered for competitive and recreational dance lessons, with the opportunities to do performance work, examinations, competitions, and championships.

Kimberley Cranbrook Highland Dance Association currently hosts a competition on the third weekend of each April, and a summer day camp the last week of every August. 


Our teachers are fully certified through the British Association of Teacher's of Dancing and are participating members of ScotDance Canada.
